TEMP := @Prompt([YESNO]; "Create application request"; " Do you wish to compose an application development request for a *NEW* application?? It will be routed to the Development Team for evaluation. They will contact you about this request within the next x hours/days"); REM; REM " If No, then exit formula, else - continue "; @If(TEMP = 0; @Return(""); ""); REM; REM " Set request Type and Formname for audit trail "; FIELD Type := "request"; FIELD Form := "Audit form"; REM; REM " Save audit document so user does not have to do it"; @Command([ViewRefreshFields]); @Command([FileSave]); @Command([FileCloseWindow]); @Command([FileCloseWindow]); REM; REM " Compose appropriate DB form & not add DB to desktop "; REM " Note: They will need to save composed doc and exit from DB view " @Command([FileOpenDatabase]; "yourserver" : "General\\Reqstdb.nsf"; ""; ""; ""; "1"); @Command([Compose]; ""; "Request Form")
